Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,650 helped purchase a motorcycle.

John Mario's story

John is 46 and has sold electronic goods and replacement parts for the past twenty years. At the same time, he also lends his services in electronics. He started his business in his home, and with the passing of time, his sales have increased, creating the opportunity to open a location and expand his place in the local market.

He is currently requesting a loan to purchase a motorcycle so he can get to homes for his business, which would help him increase sales and reduce transportation costs.

His dream is to offer his family their own home and a better quality of life.
